Publix - Have I said I love Publix?

I had another wonderful week of shopping at Publix.  Here's what my savings looked like:

Shelf Cost:  $168.93
Coupons:  $37.02
Discounts:  $70.62
Rebates Used:  $10.00
Amount Spent:  $51.29
Percentage Saved:  70%

I had a Publix gift card that I recieved from the Kimberly Clark rebate (Huggies products basically) that I posted about on Friday.  If I receive a gift card, I include it in my savings once I use the card.  If I'm receiving a cash rebate, I count it in my savings the day I purchase the items I'll be receiving the rebate on.  Make sense?

Here are some of my best deals:

Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Pasta: (4 boxes) $1.79- $0.89 BOGO Sale - (2) $1/2 Manuf Coupon =  $0.39 per box
Valley Fresh Frozen Veggies:  (4 bags) $2.39 each - 1.19 BOGO Sale - $1.00 for $0.50/1 Manuf Coupons that doubled = $0.19 per bag

Cascandian Frozen Organic Fruits:  (4 bags) $3.49 each - $1.50 each sale price - (1) Publix $2/3 Cascandian Frozen Veggies or Fruits - (2) $1/1 Cascandian Product Manuf Coupon - (1) $1/2 Cascandian Products Manuf Coupon = $0.74 each

I didn't get anything for free today but who's cares!  I still saved 70%!


  1. Congrats! I have to say I am jealous. You probably know there is no Publix in Knoxville. I think it is hard to achieve that kind of savings at Kroger, their sales are not as good. They do not do as many bogo free specials. I think the best I've ever done was 45% savings. I'm learning to use Ingles, they seem to run better sales. But overall some of their prices are higher.

  2. A lot of people in Chattanooga go to Ingles. They are kind of like Publix, I think, in the fact that their prices are a little higher but their sales are awesome. I also shop Bi-Lo and usually get 40-50% savings there. 45% is great Katie! I typically get around 45% also but I've had some awesome weeks at Publix lately.

  3. Thanks for the encouragement. I'm glad to know that other people do well at Ingles also. I will try to pay more attention to that. There's no Bi-Lo's left here either! I have used a lot of your advice from the blog and I will try to comment more often about what is working out for me.
